Amboseli Tailormade Holidays

Amboseli National Reserve is at the foot of Mt Kilimanjaro, close to the Tanzanian border. Amboseli is one of the smaller reserves but it has a wide range of wildlife, even the endangered black rhino.

Meaning a "place of water" in Masai, Amboseli has an endless water supply filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Kilimanjaro's snow melt, which form into two water springs in the reserve. However, if the rainy season is particurlarly dry, Amboseli changes into a dusty plain but in the early 1990's ceaseless rain changed it into a swamp. Amboseli's dust is ancient volcanic ash, whose salt crystals shimmer on the surface of the parched lakebed during the dry season, creating mirages.

The park is known for its elephant population and old bull elephants here can have some of the largest tusks in Africa. Also in the reserve are buffalo, wildebeest, zebra, giraffes, impala and warthog. The carnivores include lion, caracal, jackal, hyena and serval cat. Cheetah and leopard are not readily seen. Bird species includes pelican, flamingo, king fisher, African fish eagle, ibis, secretary bird, crowned crane, grey and Goliath herons amongst others.

The long hot and humid rainy period starts around April and lasts until June, then the short rains come during November and December. The dry season runs from January through to March (hot and dry), while July to October are warm and dry.
